I'm joined this episode by Rob Seiger, a partner in Archer & Greiner P.C.’s Sports Law Group, to talk about the issues facing international student athletes when it comes to taking advantage of new name, image and likeness rights.
Rob represents college and university athletic departments in immigration and related compliance issues for their foreign athletes. So, we chatted about the advice he's currently giving to his clients when it comes to international student athletes and NIL.
In this episode, we discussed:
- Current rules for international student athletes on student visas
- Is there a difference for international student athletes between getting paid $50 for an Instagram post and getting free food from a local BBQ restaurant for your entire offensive line?
- Gifts vs. compensation
- What we can learn from the issues the NHL faced with visas for international athletes
- How and when the federal government might provide guidance for international student athletes re: NIL
- His advice for international student athletes right now
- How things would change for international student athletes if student athletes were considered employees
